Make A Statement // Accent Walls

Howdy friends! Today we’re wrapping up the Make A Statement series. 

On Wednesday I shared my Master Bedroom update. I painted an accent wall behind my bed and it makes everything else pop! LOVE! If you missed it, you can check it out HERE.

Of all the ways to make a statement in your space that we’ve explored the past couple of months, painting an accent wall has to be the simplest way to get the biggest bang for your proverbial buck! Both money and effort (though painting is not always easy, especially when you have to move big furniture and you have a bad back lol, oopsie). I know a lot of folks are not a fan of doing accent walls, and I don’t think they’re right for every space. But if you’re feeling like your room is lacking a little somethin’, somethin’, maybe it’s needing some contrast!

Check out these inspiration shots that I corralled over on Pinterest (because duh, where else would I do it?!) and see how to do an accent wall the right way. You can browse my board HERE. But please pin from the original sources. Take a peek below!

What side of the accent wall debate are you on? Yay or nay?

Let me know your stance!

Many thanks and much love,

House Tour Update // Master Bedroom

Hello friends! I’m back on the blog today to share a recent update to my master bedroom.

Drumroll please…I painted an accent wall!

First, a little backstory: when I purchased the paint for my bathroom and powder room makeovers back before I had even moved in, I wayyy overestimated what I needed and bought a full gallon. I used about half of that (and I even painted the inside of my coat closet too!). And over the past year or so I have toyed with the idea of adding an accent wall behind my bed. Conveniently enough it just so happens that the leftover paint I’ve been saving is one of the colors in my bedroom color scheme. No brainer, right? So, I finally pulled the trigger, and I’m loving it! And I still have a lot of paint left haha…

I first shared the full Master Bedroom reveal back in February (if you missed it, you can check it out HERE). I still have a couple of design projects to do, but until then, are you ready to see the headboard wall before and after?

House Tour Update // Stairway

I’m baaack! I’m popping in today to share a little house project/update I’ve been slowly working on for a couple of weeks and just completed (this morning). I finally hung that gallery wall I’ve been wanting to add to my stairway! Hooray!

I first shared my stairway in my Powder Room to Laundry house tour post (HERE). There wasn’t much to see then, and I still have projects on my to do list, but I’m happy with the progress so I wanted to post an update for you all. Shall we?

Make A Statement // Stenciling

Happy looooong holiday weekend (if you’re in the USA)!! Woo freakin’ hooooo!!! I SO needed this long weekend lol…

So, this week on the blog I was SUPPOSED to share my Dining Room/Area update. Which was SUPPOSED to involve spicing up my built in credenza by painting it with a black base coat, and then using a stencil technique to make it look like it had bone inlay. But if you read what I actually posted on Wednesday (HERE), then you’ll know I did no such thing.
